(Salem, OR) -- A bill with bipartisan support has passed the Oregon Senate that would make 200-million dollars available to help businesses apply for federal CHIPS Act money. 190-million dollars would help businesses apply for the federal money and 20-million dollars would go to land acquisition and university research. The goal is to attract a semiconductor manufacturing plant. The bill would also allow the Governor to site up to eight locations outside of the Urban Growth Boundary after going through a public process. Opponents say the legislature should wait until the May revenue forecast to make sure budget cuts aren't needed. The bill moves to the House.
